‘Canned Food for a Movie Drive’ Planned

Mark Benson, Committee Chairman of the Coudersport Rotary Food Projects Committee, announced that the Club’s annual “Canned Food for a Movie” food drive will be held on Wednesday, November 24th at 6:00 p.m. at the Coudersport Movie Theatre. This year the Coudersport Movie Theatre will be showing, “Secretariat,” a rated PG film, great for the whole family.

“All the kids need to do is bring canned foods or boxed non-perishables to the Coudersport Movie Theatre at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov 24th and they are rewarded with a free movie to kick off the holiday break!” explained Benson.  “We are grateful that the Coudersport Theatre has been such a huge supporter of this community program, donating the movie each year and opening its doors exclusively for the food drive”, added Benson. 

All donations are delivered that same day by the Rotary Club to the Coudersport Food Bank for distribution to the area’s families which may need a little boost through the holidays.  Last year approximately 172 children attended the Rotary food drive, donating 389 boxed and canned food items.
